    Tidbit on UMKC game

    Did a little poking around today Media Day. Like many of you, I was curious as to where this UMKC game came from.

    It sounds like UMKC will play in Hilton the next two seasons following this one. Also, it sounds like the program wanted to get down to KC as there are many Cyclone fans/alums in that area. I think there is some sort of a connection between the two athletic departments as well.

    It all makes sense and sounds like a pretty decent deal.

    As a KC area alum, I would like to thank the athletic department for showing us some love on this one and look forward to seeing everyone at the game!

    Yeah, but they lost in those dumps known as Kemper Arena and Sprint Center. Nothing nearly as ultra-modern as Municipal Auditorium.

    Heading to this game since it's over break. At first thought it was over finals week and was disappointed. Should be a great time for everybody!

    Do you really consider Drake and UNI "true" rivals? Besides we still play one of them each year at the Well.

    Yes, I would consider them true in state rivals... And a half full game once every other year is complete B.S.

    If they want to play in KC, fine... But schedule someone with a pulse.
